Perfect Sweet Potato Biscuits Recipe: Fluffy, Tender, and Bursting with Sweet Potato Pie Flavors

After countless hours searching the internet for the perfect sweet potato biscuit recipe, I found myself coming up short. None of the recipes I came across quite captured the flavors and textures I was dreaming of. So, like any determined food lover, I decided to create my own. Introducing my Sweet Potato Biscuits – they have all the warm, comforting flavors of sweet potato pie, with baking spice, caramel-y vanilla, and buttery sweet potatoes, all packed into a fluffy, tender biscuit.

A Sweet and Spicy Delight

One thing I absolutely love about this recipe is that it’s a great way to use up leftover candied sweet potatoes. If you have some lingering from Sunday dinner, this is the perfect dish for you. And if not, it’s definitely worth making some just for this recipe! These biscuits are topped with whipped butter that's infused with the spiced syrup the sweet potatoes were cooked in and finished with a sprinkle of crunchy sea salt.

Why This Recipe Works

  1. Balanced Flavors: The sweetness of the candied sweet potatoes is perfectly balanced with the spices and the buttery biscuit base, creating a delightful harmony in every bite.
  2. Tender Crumb: The addition of buttermilk and mashed sweet potatoes ensures these biscuits are incredibly moist and tender.
  3. Versatile Use: This recipe is a fantastic way to utilize leftover candied sweet potatoes, making it practical and delicious.

Tools You'll Need

  • Medium saucepan
  • Food processor
  • Mixing bowls
  • Biscuit cutter or knife
  • Parchment-lined baking sheet
  • Stand mixer or hand mixer

Pro Tips for the Most Delicious Biscuits Ever

  1. Keep Ingredients Cold: Make sure your butter and buttermilk are cold to ensure the biscuits stay flaky. Cold butter creates steam during baking, which helps the biscuits rise.
  2. Don’t Overmix: When combining the wet and dry ingredients, pulse just until the dough comes together. Overmixing can lead to tough biscuits.
  3. Layer the Dough: Gently knead the dough by folding it over itself a few times to create layers. This technique helps achieve flaky, layered biscuits.
  4. Use a Sharp Cutter: When cutting the biscuits, use a sharp biscuit cutter or knife and avoid twisting. Twisting can seal the edges and prevent the biscuits from rising properly.
  5. Serve Fresh and Warm: Biscuits are best served fresh out of the oven with a generous dollop of the spiced butter.
